Superyacht deck equipment specialists Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) has announced it has employed two new team members following a 60% increase in overall sales revenue in its second year of business.
SSCo founder and owner, Josh Richardson, commented, “After a particularly challenging year, it is reassuring to see all the team’s hard work pay off. Despite the difficulties presented by Covid, there is still clear demand for high quality deck gear delivered by an experienced project management team.”
In the last two months, SSCo has employed Sam Hall as project manager and Amy Clark as office administrator. With a strong yachting background, Sam brings a wealth of product and supply chain knowledge to the business. Amy joins the SSCo team with marketing experience, having come from a role in the shipping industry.
SSCo project manager Sam Hall said, “Yachting has always been a part of my life, both in my career and in my downtime, so it’s great to be joining a team working right at the heart of the superyacht industry. SSCo has hit the ground running and I’m looking forward to building on the company’s success to date.”
As well as expanding the team, SSCo has recently invested in a storage facility to meet growing demand.
Josh Richardson added, “From fenders, to whips, jet ski trolleys and a lot more, SSCo manufactures and supplies a wide range of products to superyachts worldwide. With orders on the increase, it was the right time to invest in the extra storage space to allow the team to continue to deliver an efficient service, often on very time-sensitive orders.”
SSCo offers a range of high-quality superyacht deck gear, most of which is completely customised to meet a yacht’s specific criteria. The company also manufactures its own line of products, including tender mooring whips, jet ski trolleys, carbon fibre boat hooks, transom fenders, dock steps and boarding ladders.
